About
Aberdeen Restaurant & Bar provides a scenic waterfront setting allowing guests an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful meal in a beautiful Northwoods setting. Our creative cuisine, dedicated team & warm ambiance make us a popular destination for both residents and tourists. While reservations are recommended, we accept walk-in customers and what better place to wait for a table! We're accessible year around by car and seasonally by boat or snowmobile, and Aberdeen can accommodate both groups and special events. We're looking forward to your next visit!
